Visitation Province

We Remember Them

On All Souls Day, we gathered for a Memorial Service, during which we prayed, not only for the Visitation Province Sisters who died during the past year, but also for the fourteen Sisters who died at Andrews since we took residence here almost five years ago. (Sisters Margaret Kelly, Marie Bernice Arsenault, Georgina Hughes, Dorothy McCarron, Alfreda Rogers, Margaret Arsenault, Mary Cummiskey, Angela Shea, Elizabeth McCarron, Kathleen Chisholm, Joan O'Connor, Theresa McCarron, Clemmie McCarron and Florence O'Keefe). Their photos were displayed and a candle was lit as each name was read. We are grateful for having had them in our midst. We remember them fondly and we rejoice at their New Life in the presence of the loving God they served so well!

St. Joseph Convent Mabou 

Please remember the sisters and friends of St. Joseph Convent as they gather, Wednesday, November 14th for the secularization of the chapel. This celebration will also mark a rite of transition from the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame to the Gaelic College Foundation. Best wishes are sent to all.

A Book worth Pondering 

In a world where there is often little compassion, blatant inconsideration or a lack of sensitivity to the life situations of others, in her book, Boundless Compassion, Joyce Rupp sets out a process whereby we can develop a compassionate consciousness and embrace the behaviours that embody it. Through reflections and exercises she immerses us in an experience of opening our hearts to ourselves, to others and to all that relates to living consciously and compassionately in our relationships with all who share life in our earthly home.
